1. Waiver to File Returns Electronically

The IRS has issued guidance on how exempt organizations that are required to file certain returns electronically may obtain waivers of those requirements. Complete details are available on the IRS website.

 


2. Changes on IRS Website

In November 2005 the irs.gov web site was redesigned. Using customer feedback, we restyled the look, improved site navigation and enhanced search engine usability. See What's Changed on irs.gov for more information.

More changes are coming. Expect a reorganization of the EO site early in calendar year 2006.

 IRS announced a settlement initiative for taxpayers to resolve their tax disputes with the IRS over certain abusive tax avoidance transactions. The initiative is open until January 23, 2006.
